Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Hahahahaha, I really like that story Kim told, Sarah. Knowing how down to Earth Kim is, I'm sure she was mortified. And congratulations on getting a picture!!!! That's awesome.

Kim plays Schiavone (11-0 H2H having never lost a set so that's good) tomorrow at 2:30 PM.

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Yeah 2 sps saved with good play.
8/8 bps saved in the match. Down 3*-4 0-40 she hit 3 big serves. I was really surprised not really really used to watching Kim serve so well consistently.
Hasn't been broken since the first set against Oprandi.

That said she needs to work on put away easy shots. Almost missed the last one too. She rushes too much when she sees a short ball.

Otherwise I really am happy how she is progressing this week.
The first match had me scared but come to think of it the last two were actually good from Kim.

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Well done! H2H now 24-0 in sets
Kim saved 2 setpoints in tie-break, at 7-5 and 7-6 I think (had to rely on live scores).

No, you're not stupid or I am too haha
I felt exactly the same way when I met her last year, but then you have to dare to ask, it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity Plus Kim is so sweet and nice!

Now on to the semis! Yay!

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Semifinals, excellent. This is exactly what Kim needs--match play. She has to be pleased with how this tournament is going. Now U. Radwanska tomorrow. They're the second semifinal (the first is not before 2:00). Hopefully this is doing loads of good for her confidence.

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

article from Unicefopen.nl, where Sam & Carl gave a press conference: (translation in a minute)

Kim Clijsters neemt geblesseerd afscheid van UNICEF Open

Kim Clijsters komt niet meer in actie op de UNICEF Open. De Belgische titelfavoriete heeft te veel last van een buikspierblessure. Samen met haar team en op advies van de artsen heeft ze het besluit genomen haar halve finale tegen Urszula Radwanska niet te spelen.

“Kim is ontgoocheld”, vertelt conditietrainer Sam Verslegers, die tijdens een persconferentie meer uitleg gaf over de blessure. “In de tweede set tegen Francesca Schiavone kreeg ze meer last van haar buikspieren. We zijn naar het ziekenhuis in ’s-Hertogenbosch geweest, waar een onregelmatige vezelstructuur is geconstateerd. We hebben, met het oog op Wimbledon, het zekere voor het onzekere genomen.” Volgens Verslegers is er zeker geen sprake van een spierscheuring. “Het is puur overbelasting. Enkele dagen rust gaat voor veel beterschap zorgen, misschien wel tot volledige genezing. In denk dat ze over enkele dagen voluit kan gaan.”

Clijsters reist ofwel vanmiddag al, of morgen naar Wimbledon. Maandag staat ze daar in de eersteronde tegenover Jelena Jankovic. “Ik denk dat ze dan voluit kan gaan”, aldus Verslegers. Trainer Carl Maes toonde zich eveneens teleurgesteld, maar realistisch. “Dit is een beslissing van het hele team, maar geen beslissing van het hart. Kim had vandaag heel graag willen spelen. Dit is puur een rationele beslissing.”

Toernooidirecteur Marcel Hunze betreurt het besluit, maar heeft er ook respect voor. “We hebben deze week veel goed nieuws gehad, dit keer hebben we heel slecht nieuws. Het is heel jammer voor Kim en heel jammer voor het toernooi. Maar ik denk dat het een goede keuze is. Ze wil Wimbledon en de Olympische Spelen niet in gevaar brengen. Aan de andere kant: we hebben deze week veel plezier aan Kim beleefd.”

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

quick translation, hope everything is clear

Injured Kim Clijsters says goodbye at UNICEF Open
Kim Clijsters won’t be playing at the UNICEF Open. The Belgian favourite for the title has a stomach muscle injury. Together with her team and adviced by doctors, she decided not to play her semifinal against Urszula Radwanska.


“Kim is disappointed”, said physical coach Sam Verslegers, at a press conference about the injury. “In the second set against Francesca Schiavone her stomach muscles strated to bother her more. We went to the hospital in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, were they saw an irregular fibre structure. With Wimbledon starting soon, we didn’t want to take many risks.” According to Verslegers there definitely isn’t a muscle tear. “It’s pure overburdening. A couple of days of rest will make it a lot better, maybe even fully heal it. I think that in a couple of days she can play at 100% again.”

Clijsters will travel to Wimbledon this afternoon or tomorrow. On Monday she will play Jelena Jankovic in the first round. “I think she can play at her maximum level.” says Verslegers. Coach Carl Maes was also disappointed but realistic. “This is a decision we made with the team, but it wasn’t a decision we wanted to make. Kim really wanted to play today. This is purely a rational decision.”
Tournament director Marcel Hunze is disappointed by the decision but also has respect for it. “We have had a lot of good news this week, this time it’s very bad news. I feel sorry for Kim and it’s a setback for the tournament. But I think it’s a good decision. She doesn’t want to risk Wimbledon or the Olympics. On the other side: we had a lot of fun with Kim this week.”

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

Filip Dewulf said she played with a special patch to keep the muscle warm yesterday...
hopefully it's nothing serious and a couple of days of rest will make it better

Re: Rosmalen - Unicef Open 2012

She is definitely playing wimby. this is just precautionary. With possible Sunday finals (rain) its probably a good outcome that she withdrew and can focus on wimby

only worrisome thing is that if she is fragile enough to overburden her muscles with 3 matches. How can she pull 7 straight. Then again she almost made it to AO final (maybe even title) with a completely broken body. So I am very hopeful
